Twenty-five years ago Fran, daughter of manager Frank Mullins of the Poughkeepsie Pioneers, was brutally murdered. There can have been no doubt about it. After all, shortly after she was killed, a number of the players and staff of this minor-league baseball team saw her corpse lying in the dugout on the third-base line of War Memorial Stadium. 

The man suspected of her murder was acquitted by a jury so long ago that most people involved have forgotten about it. Many hoped it might remain forgotten—until Anastasia Baker, an up-and-coming reporter from the Poughkeepsie Examiner (and daughter of the owner of both the paper and the Pioneers) starts asking questions as she pursues a rumor that Fran may not be dead after all.

It seems that Fran had been intimate with more than a few members of the team—as well as with a number of unsavory characters who might have welcomed her demise. In no time a series of murders occurs, and the plot thickens as the story hurtles to its conclusion.
